Folkform’s new interpretation of the Tabouret ”Anna” originally designed by Bruno Mathsson in 1945
In their new interpretation of the tabouret, Folkform’s ambition is to challenge the classic shape drawn by Bruno Mathsson by means of combining materials and techniques in new ways. The covering is made of leather from the Tärnsjö tannery and in the same dark brown tone used for the benches Folkform designed for the National Museum in 2018. The legs are pigmented with varnish in dark brown.
